How Video Pipe Inspection Works

We can thank miniaturization technology for the development of video pipe inspection equipment: we can now insert a high quality camera deep into narrow plumbing to locate clogs, breaks, corrosion, sediment build-up, and then identify the specific issues that our repairs must address.

The inspection equipment consists of a long fiber optic cable with a miniaturized camera attached to one end.  A light, usually an LED, is also mounted on the end to illuminate the interior of the pipes.

The cable snakes down into a drainpipe, and the camera relays footage to a monitor for the plumbing technician to see the inside of the pipes. Inspection includes recording the feed so the plumbers can go back over the images and analyze them.

The video camera can locate almost any kind of damage inside a pipe, from tree root infiltration to organic clogging. Plumbers then decide what methods to use to remedy the problem with the least amount of intrusive work. Roots, for example, can sometimes be eliminated with chemical foam, and liners can fix some damage without requiring excavation. But if excavation appears necessary, the plumbers can narrow it down to the smallest area.
